“The decision to close the restaurant was not taken lightly.

“All members of our Five Guys Crew have been offered opportunities in other stores where there is a vacancy.

“If a suitable position is not available their role will be made redundant on an enhanced redundancy package.

“We value the loyalty of our customers and know that some of them will be disappointed by the news.”

There were emotional scenes in Five Guys last night as 8pm approached, the time it would shut for the last time.

There were hugs among the dozen staff behind the service counter.
